Quantum battery breakthrough paves way for revolution in energy storage

Quantum battery breakthrough paves way for revolution in energy storage

 

What Happened?

Researchers have made significant progress towards making quantum batteries a reality after demonstrating a new proof-of-concept device. The next-generation battery technology has the potential to revolutionize energy storage by making use of a phenomenon known as super absorption. This process involves a quantum mechanical principle relating to a molecule’s ability to absorb light, requiring less charging time the more they become entwined. This means that it is theoretically possible for the charging power of a quantum battery to increase faster than the size of the battery. Super absorption, therefore, means the bigger the battery, the faster it charges.

Why is this important?

It is no secret that batteries are becoming increasingly important in our society. They store energy that can be used to power electric cars, electronic devices, and even entire homes. High-capacity batteries could have a profound impact on everything from mobility to logistics. Imagine that all the sustainable energy that we produce in the near future could be stored and used for powering our entire economy and in particular the more heavy and polluting ones like the production industry, mobility, and logistics. In short: high-intensity batteries could be a game-changer for businesses and consumers.
